Welcome to Preston Library's research resources for Mechanical Engineering!

Contact us for assistance with your research questions about: 

  • the production, control and utilization of energy and motion in systems to benefit society
  • including aerospace, power, HVAC, bioengineering, manufacturing, management, and a host of others. (From VMI's Mechanical Engineering webpage).

Use the tabs on the left-hand side to find:

  • Background sources such as, but not limited to, dictionaries and encyclopedias provide context for your topic or even help you choose one. 
  • Books that provide in-depth information on broad subject areas.
